CHEV CK 1500PU WON'T START

1999 Chevrolet Truck • V8 2WD Automatic •

We have a 1999 Chevrolet CK 1500 pickup truck and it won't start. The engine turns over but won't fire. Battery has lots of juice and there is lots of gas in the tank. Up until this morning it ran just fine.

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if okay-check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing

No can't hear the fuel pump at all. We are going to check the fuel pump fuse and relay.
